Allen Organ in St. Peter’s Basilica
Each Christmas the Vatican celebrates Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, drawing thousands of people from around the world. It’s a celebration of unity and peace with a liturgy by Pope Francis and beautiful hymns sung by the choir. This year Christmas Eve Mass will be celebrated at St. Peter’s Basilica on December 24th at 9:30 PM Rome time (3:30 EST). The service will be broadcast live, worldwide, on EWTN.
We are excited to share with you the opportunity we have to be a part of the Vatican’s Christmas Eve Mass this year! Last month, Allen Organ Company was chosen to be the exclusive organ of the Sistine Chapel Choir for papal celebrations in St. Peter’s Square. We are so proud to have had the opportunity to partner with Allen Organ Company to produce the pedals for this organ.
While a few representatives from Allen Organ Company were installing the organ they learned the Vatican wanted the organ to be used for musical requirements at St. Peter’s Basilica itself. This week, Vatican officials confirmed the Allen organ, recently installed in St. Peter’s Basilica, will be used for Christmas Eve Mass. We, at Premier Engineered Products, are honored to be a part of this experience and grateful for our partnership with Allen Organ Company.
Happy holidays from all of us at Premier Engineered Products and best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year!
